If I had Alexa or Siri or any such noise on any device of mine, I’d end up with a smashed device. I almost bought an iPhone around a dozen years ago. I opted for a $35 dumbphone instead and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Every time I hear or see the name iPhone, it makes me think of that all-time beloved riddle:
Q = How do you milk sheep?
A = Release a new iPhone.

I tell you, life's been pretty great without Facebook since I first refused the invitation to join in 2007.

It's not worth it. My wife has one. The facial recognition feature is cool, but for everything else, you're just fine sticking with the older models.

I have to stay on a pre-pay plan just to get a price break on my service. The phone market now, it's kind of ridiculous, or seems so to me. I like to use swappa to get an idea for what used phone prices go for. I usually pay $100 for a phone that can last me up to two years. I just finally tried out the samsung line with the samsung S5 mini. I only have to wait until next March to hit my 2 years. Need something bigger to read on, thinking S6 soon.

The new ratings were added as part of the latest iOS 12 update, which rolled out to users on Monday, September 17.

Woman, 25, has iPhone headstone erected at burial plot with her face as ‘screensaver’

Rita Shameeva died in January 2016 from an unknown cause but her father Rais Shameev only recently decided to put up the bizarre memorial.

Made from basalt, the headstone is in the shape of a black iPhone and has a picture of the dead woman as the ‘screensaver’.
